Excess consumption of sugar can be detrimental in the long term
An average Indian consumes about 20 kilos of sugar
 
New Delhi, 02 September 2018: Estimates suggest that an average Indian consumes about 20 kilos of sugar a year! What exacerbates the situation is that most people are unaware why sugar is not good and that it is highly addictive. One of the most common lifestyle ailments, type 2 diabetes, is caused by overconsumption of sugar. In individuals who regularly consume too much sugar, the pancreas produces too much insulin and the body’s cells develop insulin resistance. This means that the glucose cannot easily be stored in the body’s cells, thus causing an excess of sugar in the bloodstream.

Globally, India has the second highest number of adults with type 2 diabetes next to China. The number of people suffering from type 2 diabetes in India is likely to double by 2045 from the current around 72 million to 151 million.
